We are always happy to build an automaton base on your idea (If is a private commission), Or the place where is going to be if is a museum, base on its history and collection, the ethos of the place, Etc.

Ones the idea is work out we will exchange drawings, ideas and possibilities until we will be all happy and the work will begun. Usually depending on the complexity of the design could take weeks to months.
It will need a base. electric coin slot , a motor, a transparent box that looks like glass to protected. Electric lights but could be more simple and just be operated by turning a handle and there is not need for electricity or protected box if is going to a private collection.
Automata coin donation boxes is a great way to tell stories and history of a place or person with humor attracting people of all ages.
Examples of commissions
